I worked at Autodesk full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible work hours: some were at work by 7 am, others not until 10 am. In my case, it would sometimes change from day to day. Able to work from home occasionally. Coupled with the flexible hours, it helped to offset the ocasional late-night conference call with other countries. My co-workers are always helpful.

Cons

Because of having offices around the world, occasional conference calls late in the evening (9 to 10 pm) or early morning (8 to 9 am). Some groups, including mine, experienced a lot of shuffling of managers. I have lost count, but I think I have had 7 different managers in 4 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to reduce the number of priority changes, or at least make it seem as if the priorities are not always changing. For example, a shorter release cycle would would allow for a more natural "change" in priorities instead of midway through a release cycle.

    Inconsistent. Outward face does not match inward actions.

    Pros

    Benefits packages tend to be very competitive. There is a decent work/life balance, and generally the teams get along well.

    Cons

    Senior management is not interested in growing teams or promoting from within. They drive toward the stock holder value much more than employee or customer value.
